Estimated Concrete Volume

11.333 cubic yards

306 cubic feet

Estimated Weight of Concrete

## 20.34 tons

Covering 612 sq. ft. at 6" depthChange dimensions

Optional 10% extra concrete

for waste allowance

10% = 1.13 cubic yards

Total Concrete with 10% = 12.47 cubic yards

for waste allowance

10% = 1.13 cubic yards

Total Concrete with 10% = 12.47 cubic yards

## Cost Estimate for 18'x34' x6"

Purchasing ready-mix concrete is by far the easiest way to mix concrete for medium to large projects and can even be used on smaller projects as well. We have provided a cost comparison between ready mix and DIY concrete premix bags to give you a rough ballpark estimate.

## Bag Cost Estimate

Pre-mixed concrete bags cost on average $3.50 per 80lb bag. Using pre-mixed bags to cover 612 sq ft at a depth of 6", the estimated cost is

**$1,781.50****$1,781.50**

for 509 x 80lb bags

## Truck Cost Estimate

Ready-mixed concrete costs on average $108.22 per cubic yard delivered. Using a concrete truck to cover 612 sq ft at a depth of 6", the estimated cost is

8.7 x $17.00 = $147.90

$1,226.49 + $147.90 =

*6 inch pours and under.

**Cost assumes subbase and general prep is done.

**$1,226.49**Concrete trucks may also charge a **"short load"** fee for partially filled loads. Short load fees are charged at about $17 for every yard not used on the truck.

8.7 x $17.00 = $147.90

$1,226.49 + $147.90 =

**$1,374.39****$1,374.39**

## Concrete Extras

A well-compacted

**subbase**provides a strong foundation for concrete to lay on. We recommend you contact your nearest concrete supplier for their recommendations on whether you need a subbase, base depth, and rock type.With a brief look, a 18x34 area at 6 inches deep, you would need approximately **16.09 tons** or **11.33 cubic yards of gravel**.

**Concrete reinforcing** is also recommended in high traffic areas and medium to large areas. **Wire mesh** on average costs **$0.56 per sq ft** and **fiber mesh** costs **$0.13 per sq ft**.

So for your **612 sq ft area**, this may roughly cost **$342.72** for wire mesh, **$1,836.00** for thicker wire rebar mesh and **$79.56** for fiber mesh.

How to Calculate Concrete Amount for 18x34 x6"

18 * 34 = 612 sq ft

6 / 12 = 0.5 ft depth

612 * 0.5 = 306 cu ft

306 / 27 = 11.333333333333

= 11.333 cu/yd

How to Calculate Concrete Weight

11.333333333333 * 3590 = 40686.67 lbs

Density of concrete used 2130 kg/m

6 / 12 = 0.5 ft depth

612 * 0.5 = 306 cu ft

306 / 27 = 11.333333333333

= 11.333 cu/yd
